Jennings, Strouss & Salmon, P.L.C. is pleased to announce that Michael J. O'Connor, a Member (Partner) with the firm's Phoenix office, was selected for induction into the American College of Trial Lawyers. Michael will join only 39 other lawyers in Phoenix with this distinction and is one of the youngest lawyers in the State of Arizona to be inducted. O'Connor, a Scottsdale resident, will be honored at the induction ceremony, Saturday, September 28.

Mr. O'Connor is a litigator with extensive trial experience in products liability, utility litigation, complex commercial litigation, and insurance coverage matters.

O'Connor received his law degree from George Washington University National Law Center and his B.A. from Johns Hopkins University.

The American College of Trial Lawyers is composed of the best of the trial bar from the United States and Canada and is widely considered to be the premier professional trial organization in America. Fellowship is extended only by invitation, after careful investigation, to those experienced trial lawyers who have mastered the art of advocacy and whose professional careers have been marked by the highest standards of ethical conduct, professionalism, civility and collegiality.

Although there are currently more than 5,000 Fellows across the U.S. and Canada, membership can never be more than 1% of the total lawyer population of any state or province. Qualified lawyers are called to Fellowship in the College from all branches of trial practice. They are selected from among advocates who represent plaintiffs or defendants in civil proceedings of all types, as well as prosecutors and criminal defense lawyers. The College is thus able to speak with a balanced voice on important issues affecting the administration of justice.
